A bloke is raking it in by raking hair off men’s private parts – and their other halves are loving his work.
Essex lad Ricky Prady runs Hair and Waxing by Ricky Prady and has been a hair stylist for 21 years.
But since an off the cuff request for waxing he has been making a killing removing hair from anywhere men request.
And the 37-year-old says that the results keep his clients and their partners happy, reports WalesOnline.
Ricky, from Billericay, Essex, said: “I earn £30,000 a year from manscaping alone. I also do ladies and men’s haircuts and colours too.
“A lot of men find it very taboo and don’t want to talk about the things they get done, but I think it should be something that men are comfortable talking about.
“A lot of people say to me ‘oh if you bump into me in the high street don’t say how you know me’. It’s quite funny.”
Ricky says that no area needs to go unwaxed,
He said: “When anyone asks ‘what can be waxed?’ I say ‘from head to toe and everywhere in between’. I have a couple of guys who have full body waxes, it’s quite popular with gym guys.
“There’s not an area that can’t be waxed. I do a lot of intimate waxes so it’s quite easy, it’s mainly what I do. Every man is different, how you wax one man is different to how you wax another depending on what’s going on down there.”
But, he says, first time clients can get a bit twitchy.
He said: “As I’m a hairdresser as well I’m manscaping at the same time – I get the clippers and the scissors out and make it all look pretty. Sometimes first-time clients get a bit alarmed when I get the scissors out like ‘I didn’t book in for a circumcision’.
“The wives and girlfriends say how much nicer it looks and how much cleaner it is but the guys’ feedback is always ‘I don’t know why I didn’t have this done years ago’. It also makes their manhood look bigger when you remove the hair.”
Ricky has male clients of all ages – and for a variety of reasons.
He said: “Sometimes their wife or girlfriend has sent them and said they need to get it sorted out as they look like an 80s throwback porn star. Other times it’ll be hygiene reasons or they can’t be bothered to do their own manscaping any more.”
He added: “I take immense pride in my work. I have people travelling in from London, Kent and the other side of Essex. Men are travelling an hour to get to me.
“It’s a real compliment that they come back to me, which is nice.”.
